secondary surrogates, whether it's paul ryan or mrs. romney or the romney boys go to those states and just buying it. i remember that very well. even though, chris, the obama campaign is dismissing the idea romney is seriously competing in these states, should they have sparener to shore up those voti ttleground map, and this has been one of the asmall, narrow . you have battleground polls show you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii. >> i'm going to give a shoutout to my bosses.
